Golden Triangle @ SohoKL

July 13, 2009

Golden Triangle seems overshadowed by its flashier neighbours at SohoKL, but it's certainly worth checking out. The ambience is lovely, the service is warm and the extensive range of Thai, Vietnamese and Laotian food is not bad at all.

The restaurant has been offering an a la carte, all-you-can-eat promo for RM54+, with dishes cooked on order and beverages aplenty (except for alcohol, which is charged separately). It's an excellent bargain, with no hidden costs.

Tom yam seafood soup. Devilishly spicy; even a tiny bowl overwhelmed me.

Butter pineapple chicken. Sounded promising, but was forgettable.

Fried namprik rice. Surprisingly tasty; savoury, sweet and sour all at once.

Seafood otak-otak in fresh coconut. A rich, creamy pleasure, packed with lavish portions of prawns, squid and fish in an eggish paste.

Claypot tang hoon prawns. This was even better; addictively flavourful stuff.

Mussels with basil leaves. Not bad; the mussels were reasonably fresh.

Songkhla lemon steamed fish. Meaty and tender, but not exactly exciting.

Thap thim krop provided a sweet finish to a satisfying, incredibly filling dinner.
